Bana Ke Ek Nai Manzil Guzar Gae Hote

banā ke ik na.ī manzil guzar ga.e hote

jidhar koī nahīñ jaatā udhar ga.e hote

pa.e sukūñ na agar ham Thahar ga.e hote

to aaj tā-had-e-shams-o-qamar ga.e hote

ġham-e-hayāt se ham bhī jo Dar ga.e hote

to qaid-e-zīst meñ rah ke bhī mar ga.e hote

jo mai-kade meñ zarā tum Thahar ga.e hote

nazar ke zor se paimāne bhar ga.e hote

na lafz gul ko samajhte na ḳhaar ke ma.anī

bachā bachā ke jo dāman guzar ga.e hote

maiñ bevafā huuñ to vo kyuuñ nazar churā ke ga.e

zarā milā ke nazar se nazar ga.e hote

nasīm-e-sub.h ke jhoñke mirī taraf kyuuñ aa.e

jahāñ bahār hai gul haiñ udhar ga.e hote

batātā kaun nasheb-o-farāz-e-rāh-e-hayāt

jo sab kī tarah se ham bhī guzar ga.e hote

bahāna chāhiye gulshan meñ Darne vāloñ ko

na ḳhaar hote to phūloñ se Dar ga.e hote

maiñ aur kuchh nahīñ kahtā magar chaman vaalo

bahār aatī to gulshan sañvar ga.e hote

jo ittihād kī manzil pe hote ham ‘shārib’

taġhayyurāt ke chehre utar ga.e hote
